Preserving tree trunks for fence posts

Ok...I know this is done because I see it all over the place. But I can't seem to find out what you need to do to preserve tree trunks/limbs for fence posts? Does anybody know what kind of preservative you need to apply?

Just remember any homemade method of preserving wood won't last forever.

I've never known anyone to put preseving on them,unless it's the store bought post.If you are talking about the plain looking ol'post,& I think you are.Then it depends on the type of wood it is.
For exp- pine would not last but afew years,Then locust will last for ever.Same as with some of the oaks.

We have oak and sweet gum...wonder how long that would last? We had some cedar but we traded those to our neighbor for flagstone.
